“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.” – Rainer Maria Rilke
Atop these crocuses celebrating the first day of Spring today
These tulips looked even more glorious atop the roof and against the bluest of skies today.

I’m beginning to think the Gift of the Four Treasures has magical properties.
Thanks to Jen’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Seasons, yesterday we visited Vancouver’s beautiful Queen Elizabeth Park and captured, in a few snapshots, a sunny Saturday afternoon in one of our city’s special places.
Queen Elizabeth Park, Vancouver
The open crocuses, rhododendrons and snowdrops, a wedding in the sunshine, children playing peek-a-boo around the Henry Moore sculpture and dancing in front of the fountains, the tulips and daffodils getting ready to burst through, a leisurely cyclist, and all against the backdrop of the city, blue sky and cumulus clouds – I hope your spirits are as uplifted as ours were.
I’ll be back when the flowers are in bloom to share the glorious array of colours that await.
A glorious afternoon today in Victoria BC’s magnificent Butchart Gardens.
